 1        AN ACT in relation to county law enforcement employees.

 2        Be it enacted by the People of  the  State  of  Illinois,
 3    represented in the General Assembly:

 4        Section  5.   The  Counties  Code  is amended by changing
 5    Section 3-8010 as follows:

 6        (55 ILCS 5/3-8010) (from Ch. 34, par. 3-8010)
 7        Sec.   3-8010.    Certification   of   applicants.    The
 8    appointment of all personnel subject to the  jurisdiction  of
 9    the  Merit Commission shall be made by the sheriff from those
10    applicants who have been certified by the Commission as being
11    qualified for appointment.  A Commission may,  by  its  rules
12    and  regulations,  set  forth  the  minimum  requirements for
13    appointment to any position.  In addition,  the  Commission's
14    review   of   any   application   may  include  examinations,
15    investigations or any other method consistent with recognized
16    merit principles, which in the judgment of the Commission  is
17    reasonable  and  practical for any particular classification.
18    Different  examining  procedures   may   be   set   for   the
19    examinations    in    different   classifications   but   all
20    examinations in the same  classification  shall  be  uniform.
21    However,  the Merit Commission may by regulation provide that
22    applicants who have served with another sheriff's  office,  a
23    police  department,  or  any other law enforcement agency, or
24    who are graduate law enforcement interns as  defined  in  the
25    Law  Enforcement  Intern Training Act, may be exempt from one
26    or  more  of  the  minimum  requirements   for   appointment.
27    Preference  may  be given in such appointments to persons who
28    have honorably served in the military or  naval  services  of
29    the United States.
30        The  sheriff  shall  make appointments from those persons
31    certified by the Commission as qualified for appointment.  If
SB1113 Enrolled             -2-                LRB9208164EGfg
 1    the sheriff rejects any  person  so  certified,  the  sheriff
 2    shall notify the Commission in writing of such rejection.
 3        The  rules  and regulations of a Commission shall provide
 4    that all initial appointees shall serve a probationary period
 5    of 12 months during which time they may be discharged at  the
 6    will of the sheriff.
 7    (Source: P.A. 86-962.)

 8        Section  99.  Effective date.  This Act takes effect upon
 9    becoming law.
